Wednesday, August 08, 2018 | Comments

Axon announced a strategic agreement with Verizon to bring connectivity to public-safety solutions for the benefit of first responders and the communities they serve. Axon also announced a strategic relationship with AT&T to cooperate, exchange information and negotiate terms to connect Axon's wireless product offerings to the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet).

Working with the two carriers will help give customers reliable mobile broadband connectivity when using Axon's body-worn and in-car cameras in the field, Axon officials said.

Axon integrates wireless technology into a range of products for law enforcement to capture and upload photo and video data into its digital evidence management solution. Wireless product offerings include body-worn cameras, in-car camera systems and signal technology that reports events such as a patrol vehicle door opening and light bar activation. Dependable wireless connectivity is crucial for law enforcement to be able to capture and upload evidence.

"The Axon network of devices and apps will only be strengthened with the power of Verizon and Axon's relationship with AT&T," said Axon Director of Wireless Strategy Will Egner. "These relationships are key enablers to providing mission-critical data communication services to our Axon customers in the U.S."

Verizon provides reliable, secure communications when it matters most to public-safety organizations. Verizon's dedicated Public Safety Private Core is a portion of its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, separating emergency data communications from commercial and consumer traffic. Verizon also provides always-on priority and pre-emption services, as well as enhanced service management and control on the nation's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network.

FirstNet is the nationwide public-safety broadband network dedicated to America's first responders. Being built by AT&T in public-private partnership with the FirstNet Authority, FirstNet is designed with and for public safety. FirstNet provides a reliable and highly secure connection to the critical information first responders need while giving them access to the modern communications tools they need to keep themselves and those they serve safer.
